No more excuses! Reasons why we don’t work out (whether you want to admit it or not)

Let’s face it, we’re all guilty of coming up with an excuse or making believe we have a real reason not to work out when we’re probably just being lazy.  But the hard truth is there is a solution to anything we can come up with no matter how hard we try. “There’s always tomorrow”  Ahh.. procrastination at its finest but seriously… Just do it!

“I don’t know where to start”  A common problem among newbies.  Set small goals for yourself so you don’t get  to overwhelmed.

“I don’t have money to join a gym”  Thank god for Youtube.  Look up some tutorials on different exercises you can do at home or outside.

“I don’t have any time”  Take the stairs instead of the elevator because as much as we like to think that that one flight of stairs will kill us, it won’t.

“I don’t know what I’m doing”  Don’t be embarrassed! There’s no shame in asking for help.

We're all beautiful so feel good, spread the love, and last but not least have fun!

Top fitness trends to change up your workout!

People across the US are changing up their work out regimens with new fitness trends like mud runs, Crossfit, spinning, and dance fusion. Between the mud, obstacles, and the fact that it’s completely badass, mud runs like Tough Mudder challenge even the most fit athletes.  Besides being physically challenging mud runs test you mentally as well, allowing you to push yourself farther than you thought possible.

At only seven years old Crossfit has become a nationwide phenomenon.  Heavy lifting is not only limited too or associated with body builders anymore!  Crossfit gives you the ability to master weight lifting skill sets that you can do at the gym or at home by yourself.

Although spinning has long been around in the fitness community the industry has revamped its image producing new types of spinning like soul cycle and fly wheel.  Although no soul cycle or fly wheel studios have opened in Boston, we do have The Handle Bar, which is one of Boston’s top cycling hot spots.  The Handle Bar offers classes for all levels and incorporates weighted bars for a full body work out.  Get ready to sweat and have fun during this intense and exciting class!

Sick of Zumba? Then try Doonya or Groov3.  These California native dance classes give a whole new meaning to dance fusion and quickly spreading across the United States.  Doonya is a Bollywood inspired fitness class that uses traditional dance moves to get your heart up!  And there’s nothing like a live DJ to keep you motivated with great music and intense moves when you visit a Groov3 class.
